Recherché 
1. Exquisite, Choice
2. Exotic, Rare

Wright is pleased to introduce Recherché to our fall auction season. This innovative sale features an eclectic selection of designs and objects hand-picked for their quality, beauty and intrigue. From a single-owner collection, our November auction marks the first in a series of sales dedicated to rare, exquisite and sometimes, unusual works.

Recherché features sixty-six select works from 18th and 19th century objets d’art to French masterworks by Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand and Serge Mouille. A grand Professor desk by Prouvé, one of only three examples from the Université de Lille in France, and an exquisitely crafted Nuage Bibliothèque by Perriand stand out among the offerings. With an emphasis on materiality and fine craftsmanship, Italian designs by Franco Campo and Carlo Graffi, Gio Ponti and Carlo Mollino as well as luxurious accessories from Louis Vuitton and Hermès round out this original sale.
